Sky Bet Championship side Cardiff City are plotting a move for Crystal Palace’s veteran goalkeeper Julian Speroni, according to a report in The Sun via WalesOnline.
In a disappointing first half of the season, it seems that the Bluebirds have been unable to fill the void that was left when David Marshall joined Hull City.
With that in mind, Neil Warnock has reportedly identified the goalkeeping position as the main one that needs addressing in the January transfer window.
After a number of high-profile mistakes in an error prone Cardiff defence, questions have been raised about Ben Amos and if he is good enough to be their number 1.
In what could be a relegation battle for those in the Welsh capital this season, Warnock is thought to acknowledge that he needs a custodian that he can trust.
In recent reports, it has emerged that Crystal Palace’s 37-year-old Argentian goalkeeper who has fallen down the pecking order at Selhurst Park could be Warnock’s top target.
Having managed Speroni on two separate occasions at Selhurst Park, Warnock would know exactly what the stopper can bring to the Cardiff City Stadium.
Rather than a permanent deal, reports are suggesting that Cardiff City may opt for a short term loan until the end of the season, that will allow Warnock to address the problem properly in the Summer with a long term solution.
Cardiff City fans, what do you make of the news? Have you been critical of Ben Amos’ recent performances? Do you feel you need to strengthen the goalkeeping position? Would you like to see Julian Speroni join your side? Would you rather Cardiff bring in a long term option in January rather than Speroni, if so, who?
